Winston Churchill (the guy who ignored unanimous advice to sue for peace with Nazi Germany) Supposedly said democracy is the worst possible system it’s only benefit being that it is better than all other options. Capitalism (I would say ) can be seen in a similar light. The world is not ‘black and white’ but shades of grey and certainly not ‘static’ . There are historically rational reasons for social systems but they have their day and change becomes imperative. I believe that if and when possible it is down to us as individuals to be the best we can.
I see the Swiss are considering the merits of abolishing parliament !
I love your writing, you’re calling it as it is but it’s the humour (not always an easy task) that will get me back every time. Seriously without it I’d be lost.
